Lymphedema and long (30+ days) cruises

I’d love any feedback on people with lymphedema who continue to take long cruises. I know everyone is different but at this point I use a compression sleeve and do my own mld with weekly specialized lymph massage. Can people keep it under control with just their own mld or have you found the need for a compression pump for long cruises? Care on board if you’ve had any infections?  Contemplating several long (45 and 71) cruises but not sure they’re feasible.

I have never taken a cruise longer than 14 days, but I travel with a pump. ( I need to pump daily.)  I haven't had any issues!
